A slip and fall accident is not always minor. Many falls send victims to emergency rooms in Oregon with serious and debilitating injuries, including shattered bones and head trauma. Each year, around three million older adults go to emergency rooms in the US for fall-related injuries, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The power to prevent a slip and fall accident often rests with the owner of the property.

It is negligent for an owner to breach this responsibility. If a slip and fall accident in Gresham injured you or a loved one, you might have grounds to bring a claim against a property owner.
